PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Attorney General Marty Jackley says a Lyman County man has been arrested after an incident this month in which a 7-week-old infant died.

Jackley and Lyman County States Attorney Steve Smith said Monday that the man was arrested Saturday on one count of first-degree murder. If convicted of first-degree murder, the penalty would be death or a mandatory life sentence.

Court records didn’t list an attorney for the man who could comment on his behalf.
